Rebecca Hepp

Rebecca graduated from Bucknell University in 2008 with a BA in English and Classics. After a brief stint in NY and PA legislative work, she escaped to the freedoms of literature in Villanova's Graduate English Program, where she has focused her studies on early American literature and Gothic fiction. As a second year student, she is formulating her thesis project around early American novelist Charles Brockden Brown his use of the Gothic genre to explore the potential for sexual deviancy in the early Republic. Between classes and her position as assistant editor for Merion Publishing, she catches up on CSI episodes, consoles her husband during Eagles games, and restocks her pantry with baked goods.
